Domoviye [1] (singular form Domovoy) are a type of ghost that are known for being helpful house spirits.

HistoryEdit

Domoviye are a type of Russian location spirit that live in houses and are deemed helpful, unless they are provoked from their dormancy, like when a phony spiritualist comes to their home and insults them with a sham seance. [2] [3] [4] Dr. Bassingame was hired by Ray's Aunt Lois to get rid of the spiritual problems in her house. As the Ghostbusters suspected, Bassingame was a fraud and his phony seance insulted the Domoviye and caused them to destroy Aunt Lois' house.

The Ghostbusters managed to get Aunt Lois out safely and then trapped 17-18 of the Domoviye. Bassingame refused to pay for the damages done to Aunt Lois' house, but was forced to do it anyway when the Ghostbusters threatened to release the Domoviye into his own house. The last Domovoy hitched a ride on Bassingame's back.

ClassificationEdit

Domoviye are identified as Class 7 Classic Free-Floating Repeaters. [5]

PowersEdit

Domoviye are often invisible unless they need to be seen and possess significant telekinetic ability to throw several grown men from the house.

Being location spirits a Domovoy cannot leave a place they haunt. [6] In folklore they can only be invited into the home or made to leave by the home owner.

DescriptionEdit

The Domoviye all had highly diverse appearances.

Based on MythologyEdit

In classic mythology, a traditional Domovoy is said to look like an overly hairy elderly man. They keep bad spirits out of the house, and are often treated as part of the family, even being referred to as 'grandfather' when addressing them. [7]
